Beyond the Classroom: A New Digital Education for Young Australians in the 21 st Century

The new digital education environment will look and function very differently. In addition to classroom teaching, staff will develop new ways of teaching that embrace digital education, and ‘bring your own device’ learning models will be integrated into the learning environment. Strong leadership in schools will be needed to support this new environment, to increase teacher capacity and to support the uptake of digital education in schools.

A must read for Aussie Educators!

Debra Evans's curator insight, July 11, 2013 5:56 PM

One to read - all teachers

Conan Gogan's curator insight, March 23, 2016 8:44 AM

I have just read an interesting report from the Digital Education Advisory Group on education in Australia.

I agree with the author of this article, 21st century education consists of computers and all the advanced technologies to help children to learn in a more efficient way. As technology is upgrading and becoming more advanced, so are the teachers. Teachers that teach in the 21st century education system have developed a more effecient and more interesting way to teach the children today.

I believe that in the future the education system will once again change and the children of the future will learn much more efficiently. This upgrade in the education will have a positive influence on the children as they benefit from it, they will learn faster and understand what they are taught better. 

Although there is a big upgrade in the technology and education systems today, it is not truly fool proof. There will always be children who might not understand what is going on in the classroom as the attention span of children is not long no matter the upgrade in technology.

Teachers Don't Need Convincing, They Need Training to Use Ed Tech

Teachers Don't Need Convincing, They Need Training to Use Ed Tech | Transliteracies, Libraries and 21st century information fluency | Scoop.it

States and school districts should stop trying to convince teachers to employ educational technology and start helping them overcome barriers to using it well, say a husband-and-wife research team.

"We don't give teachers enough credit," said Loredana Werth, an assistant professor at Idaho's Northwest Nazarene University."Most understand the benefits and impact of technology. What folks want is training and access."

That conclusion is based on findings from a survey of 200 Idaho teachers about how they use and perceive more than 30 different kinds of tech in the classroom. Loredana and Eric Werth presented their as-yet unpublished findings at the International Society for Technology in Education's 2013 conference here.

Once educators engage in and embrace PLNs they will value the need to teach students how to build their own.

In March 2012, the MacArthur Foundation shared a set of design and learning principles that emerged from their Digital Media and Learning Initiative of which the NWP is a member. These design and learning principles, called "Connected Learning"  are meant to support a proposal for a new approach to learning anchored in a rich history of teaching and learning research and theory. They are also being designed to mine the learning potential of the new social and digital media domains.

Of course, it should be in system should be synced, but not as a whole. Partially, the system can be implemented. In my point of view it is must to adopt the advancement. Avoiding the thinking of classroom, the system must understand about the participation of the student.

How Should We Teach Information Literacy in Schools? | Transliteracies, Libraries and 21st century information fluency | Scoop.it

When the majority of information moves from print to digital form, we need a new set of critical skills in order to find what we need and use if properly. Many students get to college without having learned much in the way of information literacy, although professors often expect it was already taught. How should schools teach kids about finding good materials for research? About plagiarism? About finding authoritative sources online?
